Bruins Vs. Flyers: Philadelphia Players React To 6-5 Overtime Loss

The Philadelphia Flyers couldn't defeat the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins yesterday, but did show great effort in overcoming a 3-1 deficit after the first period to eventually get to the shootout. The second period comeback was fueled by a natural hat trick from Scott Hartnell. Maxime Talbot scored the other two goals for the Flyers. Philadelphia allowed one goal in the third period and the game was scoreless in overtime. The Bruins won the shootout 2-1 to give them the 6-5 win in the game.

After the game, Flyers players and head coach Peter Laviolette talked about the result. In general, they were pleased with their effort (via CSN Philly). Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov thought both of the teams played well. Philadelphia forward Claude Giroux compared the intensity of yesterday's game to that of a playoff game.
